Peterson, 24, originally hails from the ski town of Åre, Sweden, and has been skiing since the age of two. She has competed in alpine racing, big air and ski cross, where she was a member of the Swedish national team for three years.

“I’m super stoked to be joining the Sweet Protection team! I grew up in Sweden and Sweet Protection has always been around from when I was a tiny ski racer to when I first started venturing out in the backcountry when I got older,” Peterson said. “I love the style, the fit and the quality. All the goggles have a clean and simple design that I really like – they’re very Scandinavian in a cool way. The goggles fit perfectly together with the helmets and don’t fog up. I’m a horrible skier in bad visibility, so good goggles literally make or break my day.”
